Cactus League Game Thread, 3/15/2010
The last game in Tucson for the foreseeable future, barring any Japanese teams using it for training or anything of that sort. Not a whole lot of nostalgia in the local press about the departure. In fact, the only note I really have from the papers is that, as a rider to Dave’s post on Moore below, the Everett Herald talked about the change in confidence for Moore from last spring training to this one. On a related note, it’s the spring training debut of Rob Johnson.
Shawn Kelley, Luke French, and Chad Cordero could also see some time, along with Tui and Moore, depending on how long they decide Johnson can hold up back there. Lee will be facing off against Dan Haren, in a more heated, but less mustachioed match-up compared to the earlier projection of Clay Zavada starting for the D’Backs.
